Cincoze Unveils GM-1000 Rugged Compact GPU Computer

Cincoze, a professional manufacturer of embedded systems, unveils the GM-1000 rugged GPU computer, which is powered by the 9th/8th generation Intel CPU and supports one MXM GPU module expansion. This GPU computer provides high-performance computing capability with a small footprint design, which is suitable for applications like edge computing, machine vision, image processing, and artificial intelligence.

GM-1000 can be configured with a range of 9th/8th generation Intel CPUs, including Xeon and Core i up to 8 cores. It supports dual channel DDR4 2666 MHz SO-DIMM up to 64 GB. It has abundant I/Os, including 4x COM, 2x GbE LAN, 8x USB, 1x HDMI, and 1x DVI-I. GM-1000 comes with an M.2 M key slot to support NVMe SSD, and M.2 E key slot to support CNVi for WiFi or Bluetooth connection which are commonly required in high speed data storage and communication. All these functions are integrated in a small footprint just 260 mm x 200 mm x 85 mm, making it easily installed in space-limited environments.
GM-1000 is designed with a power budget up to 360 W which provides sufficient power for CPU and GPU to operate simultaneously. Additional GPU computing acceleration is realized through MXM 3.1 Type A/B expansion slot, which allows it to expand with an embedded GPU module from various manufacturers up to 160 W.

To handle tremendous heat, which is generated from high computing power, the system adopts a unique thermal design including independent cooling systems for CPU and GPU, copper heat pipes and a special aluminium extrusion case. An optional external fan kit with 4x individual fans is also available to create an active airflow.

Thanks to Cincoze's innovative CMI (Combined Multiple IO) and CFM (Control Function Module) technologies, it allows GM-1000 to expand additional functionalities according to customer's needs. GM-1000 has multiple CMI interfaces to accommodate ready-to-use I/O modules, such as 2x 10 GbE LAN, 4x GbE LAN, 4x M12 GbE LAN, 16 DIOs, 2x COM. Whereas CFM interfaces allows installing CFM modules for adding POE and power ignition sensing functions

To ensure reliability in extreme environments, GM-1000 is designed with high tolerance of vibration (5G) and shock (50G), wide range of voltage input (9~48 VDC), Over Voltage Protection, Over Current Protection and ESD Protection. The system is also certified with E-Mark for in-vehicle applications, EN50155 rolling stock standard, and EN62368-1 safety requirement.

"To fulfill booming demands of the embedded GPU market, Cincoze has introduced our first rugged GPU computer GM-1000 in our product portfolios. GM-1000 delivers efficiency and productivity for advanced industrial applications." said Brandon Chien, CEO of Cincoze.

My experience of passive-cooling (using a couple of Streacom Alpha models and, two decades ago, the old Zalman TNN) is that this enclosure is going to be able to dissipate maybe ~150W at 50C above ambient.

Claims of 360W dissipation are a laughable violation of the laws of physics, unless they are talking about using this in a chilled environment with very strong airflow like a datacenter GPU compute rack.

At international STP, 200W is more than likely going to result in thermal throttling for both CPU and GPU in my estimation.
